Vegetarian Food and Local Beer at Beach Muffin in Zushi

Beach Muffin

Zushi, along the Shonan coast, is well known for its relaxed, laid back, slow-paced beach lifestyle. And there's no better to place to experience it then at Beach Muffin, a small bakery/cafe and local beer tap room located minutes from Shin-Zushi Station.

It's small to be sure, reminding most who go there more of an old converted house than a restaurant. There are a few plush chairs to sink into, as well as several wooden tables where you can eat Beach Muffin's excellent food.

Their 100% vegetarian menu features a one-of-a-kind veggie burger, a homemade tofu enchilada, red chili and rice, and a bagel with tofu that "tastes like tuna". You can also order sides like their "voted best in Japan fried potatoes" (they are incredibly tasty), homemade vegetable soup, and nachos. Seriously, Beach Muffin's food rocks.

And all of it can be wonderfully paired by any of the local beers (compliments of Yorocco Brewing, also located in Zushi) they serve on tap. Non drinkers can choose from a variety of organic teas and coffees or freshly-made smoothies.

Beach Muffin is an absolute must for beach and beer lovers. It's a great place to sit back and relax while enjoying good conversation and grub. If you're ever in the area, definitely make it a point to stop by.
